Oregon State University MS exercise program

Some towns just have great MS programs! Yesterday I visited the OSU MS exercise program in Corvallis, Oregon. It's held at the university and has been going since 1995. Twice a week, folks with MS can come and get free physical therapy advice and help.

Most of those attending with MS were in the 50 years older group. Maybe because of the schedule.

About 15 volunteers with MS come to exercise while about 15 students volunteer to help them. Most of the students are physical therapy students. This happens twice a week so about 30 folks total each session.

I met several folks with Ms who have been attending since the beginning of the program. Here is a pic of me and John. Beating his MS since 1995.

This is a great example of a community saying #takethatMS!
